Re: Questions about Japanese localization of SharpCapUserManual

This is a first attempt at making a translated version of the installer text (using Google Translate). I have just tested and the translations here do show up when installing on Japanese Windows - this will be in the next update. Corrections to the text welcome. Robin Capture.JPG <?xml version="...

Re: Questions about Japanese localization of SharpCapUserManual

Hi,

yes, I think I can make a version of the install that will display in Japanese if I translate the content of the text file I included in my previous post - it's not quite the same as for WinJupos, but I think I can get a similar result.

Re: Version for linux

Hi, the problem with WINE is that although you might succeed in getting SharpCap to run if you are lucky, what will not run is the drivers that make the cameras available to SharpCap. That means that at best you would get a SharpCap without any ability to talk to real cameras, which is not really so...

Re: Sensor Analysis for QHY5III-485C

Hi John, please can you retry with the SharpCap 4.0 beta - there have been a number of improvements to the sensor analysis in 4.0 and I think that the bug that gets you stuck here is one of them. https://www.sharpcap.co.uk/sharpcap/sharpcap-downloads/4-0-beta Also, please don't make manual adjustmen...

Re: Want unlinked stretch

Sorry, my mistake. I had temporarily forgotten that the colour balance settings are currently applied *BEFORE* the stretch, which means that they are in theory able to adjust for varying channel sensitivity. On the other hand if you have both colour cast in the sky glow *and* a sensor that needs adj...

Re: PA with smaller FOV?

Hi, love the fact that it worked :) I think at that FOV it would be a bit hit-and-miss. You may find a field of view where there are simply not enough stars above the limiting magnitude of the SharpCap database for plate solving to work. On the other hand, you can come up lucky and find two relative...

Re: Camera setting.txt report and histogran.csc report

Hi, both of these files are produced at the start of a capture, rather than at the end, so the information that you are looking for cannot be written to them as it is not known at the time the files are created. The histogram data is simply a snapshot of the histogram from a single frame taken near ...

Re: Want unlinked stretch

Hi, thanks for confirming - I'm still concerned about how this might work in the UI. Would an 'advanced' colour balance mode where you have a second set of colour balance sliders that are applied before the stretch help? You could use those sliders to normalize the green level down, then apply the s...

Re: Transferring License to new Laptop

Hi, you only get to claim a license once with each Altair camera purchased, but you can use the license that you get from the first claim on your new laptop. When you claimed the license initially, you will have entered your email address and been sent a license code via email. You should now go bac...
